Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Arguably the originator of the "waif look" that dominated the fashion scene of the early-1990s, Kate Moss was easily one of the world's most famous, sought-after and notorious supermodels at the turn of the millennium. The 5'7" British-born Moss came seemingly out of nowhere, achieving overnight international stardom as the reed-thin muse of Calvin Klein's latest ad campaign in 1992. Frequently paired with future movie star Mark Wahlberg, her look - defined by sullen eyes atop an undernourished frame - ushered the oxymoronic term "heroin chic" into the popular lexicon. Moss' appearances on the covers of such magazines as Vogue were soon nearly outpaced by the amount of covers of tabloids she was featured on, usually on the arm of celebrity beaus like leading man Johnny Depp or British rocker Pete Doherty. Notoriety, however, turned notorious after a scandal involving photos of Moss snorting what appeared to be cocaine appeared in various media outlets in 2005. After an initial abandonment by several of her most profitable modeling benefactors, the seemingly impervious Moss not only rebounded professionally, but went on to earn more money than she ever had before.

Arguably the originator of the "waif look" that dominated the fashion scene of the early-1990s, Kate Moss was easily one of the world's most famous, sought-after and notorious supermodels at the turn of the millennium.

After an initial abandonment by several of her most profitable modeling benefactors, the seemingly impervious Moss not only rebounded professionally, but went on to earn more money than she ever had before. Never quite a darling of the press, Moss certainly had admirers but just as many detractors. Regardless, of the latter, no one could deny Moss' chameleon-like ability to adapt to aesthetic trends, allowed her to continue to dominate the modeling world, long after many of her contemporaries had retired from the catwalk.
